28 November 1919 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Damp raw day with some rain later snow. Dense fog in morning. Still suffering from Coryza + laryngitis. Have Chlor[oform] to a boy of Mrs F ? Scott + Peggy Hood, Kirkwynd for Dav. [Dr David Graham] to remove tonsils + adenoids. Saw some town cases + motored to Bowhill – [Mrs] Ordish convalescing slowly. David has been sent for to Whiterigg to someone who is staying with Mrs Jamieson who, I rather think, is the daughter of Sheriff Boyd.
